International Symposium on Autoethnography and Narrative

Online Conference on January 2–5, 2022

02. - 05. Januar 2022
Organisator: International Association of Autoethnography and Narrative (IAANI)

Given the continued prevalence of Covid-19 nationally and internationally, travel restrictions, and the uncertainty and financial constraints faced by many scholars, the 2022 International Symposium on Autoethnography and Narrative (ISAN) will be a fully online conference. The conference will occur via Zoom on January 2-5, 2022. Eastern Standard Time (EST) will be used for all conference activities. 

ISAN will provide scholars and practitioners of all experience levels an opportunity to present their autoethnographic and personal narrative projects and to participate in dialogue and sociability with scholars across a variety of disciplines.

Additional details:

  • The actual conference (January 2-5, 2022) will consist of discussion sessions devoted to the video presentations. Each session will have a moderator who will keep time, starting and ending the session, and monitoring that each panelist has an opportunity to talk about their presentation.  Participants will not present during these sessions; they already will have presented via the prerecorded video. Instead, these sessions will be interactive, providing a space for panelists to meet and talk to other panelists, for audience members to ask questions and make comments, and for the moderator to offer brief commentary, if desired. To encourage participation and stimulate discussion, we suggest that each panelist provide a brief (2-3 minute) summary of their video at the start of the (live) conference session.
  • Registration will cost $25 (USD) for all participants. Participants must use PayPal to pay the registration fee. If a participant does not have PayPal, they will need to sign up for an account, or have someone use PayPal to pay on their behalf. Only those who have registered for the conference will have access to panels, workshops, and social events.* 
  • Conference registration will open September 15, 2021. Presenters must register for the conference by November 15, 2021. Presenters will only appear in the final conference program if they have a) submitted the link to their presentation and b) registered for the conference. 
  • By December 1, 2021, the program will be available for all registrants. Registrants will have at least one month to view the presentations (via links). If a registrant is interested in a particular presentation, they should watch the video before the conference begins (January 2-5, 2022). 
  • All presentation links, discussion sessions, and other conference activities will only be available to registrants. However, participants should recognize that a registrant possibly could share these links or recorded sessions without permission. Although we cannot totally control these unethical practices, we will take every precaution to constrain them. If any participant is found to be sharing or recording a session without permission, they will not be allowed to continue participating in this conference or in any future conferences organized by this Association. Unfortunately, if a participant has concerns about online privacy, sharing, and recording, then it is probably best that they refrain from participating in the conference. 
  • In the next few months, we will develop and share some possible publication opportunities for conference presenters. We are still working out the details. 

We look forward to working with everyone virtually!
